Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,252: R2-Q5 (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 4, 2015

He's back, and slightly bigger than ever (from Hasbro)!  R2-Q5 has opening panels with painted arms and a swell finish - but none of the scopes that came with R2-D2 two years ago.   Is it cool?  Well, I think so, but I'm biased.  It's in stock for ordering right now, and you can read on to see if you should care!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,251: First Order TIE Fighter Pilot (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 3, 2015

Elite!  The red-striped First Order TIE Fighter Pilot is the only 6-inch TIE Pilot from the new movie you can own today - but the non-striped version is up for pre-order at fine toy stores everywhere.  This one, however, comes with a TIE Fighter with wings so tall they can black out the sun.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,250: Lt. Oxixo (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Hey, it's Lt. Oxixo!  He's more than just a TIE Pilot - specifically, he's painted more than just a TIE Pilot.  This 6-inch scale exclusive has an added silver crest, a silver stripe on his chest, and different buttons on his sleeve - plus more paint on his gun.   Should you freak out and buy this exclusive right now?  Scientists say yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,249: Crimson Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 1, 2015

Hey, it's the Crimson Stormtrooper!   Or Magma Stormtrooper, or Lumiya's squad, depending on where you saw red troopers like this first.  (I'm voting for Lumiya.)  It's pretty awesome - and part of a new boxed set that's available right nowRead on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,248: Stormtrooper Officer (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 30, 2015

Amazon's 6-inch First Order Stormtrooper Officer adds a shoulder pauldron to the figure previously sold at Comic-Con and in fine stores everywhere.  Is it enough to warrant buying again?  Well, it's in a swell boxed set, so I'm leaning toward yes.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,247: R2-H15 (Disney Park Exclusive)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 27, 2015

If you missed it, the R2-H15 is new!  It just came out and is showing up at Disney's theme park in Anaheim for about $13.  (Thanks for getting me this one, Matt!)   Is it worth it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,246: Imperial Shock Trooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 26, 2015

I'm pretty stoked whenever we get a Stormtrooper with marks of some sort, so last week's Walmart-only Imperial Shock Trooper was a treat.   The mold is good, and the Shocktrooper markings from the Battlefront game make it even cooler.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,245: Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Fresh from the drug store chain, Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) is out and about with improved armor deco, a retooled arm, and a new head.   It's a decent figure - but it's still basically the same Vader from last year with a few modifications.   Want to see more about this 6-inch figure?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,244: Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens X-Wing)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 24, 2015

From Walmart's white and blue X-Wing, the Poe Dameron (The Force Awakens X-Wing) brings you the figure from the Armor Up release body sculpt with a different head - complete with dedicated helmet.  In addition to the X-Wing, he's also got a blaster - is this enough to warrant your cash assuming you can find it?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,243: Imperial Stormtrooper (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, November 23, 2015

If you pre-ordered or ordered in a brief window 2 weeks ago, you got this Imperial Stormtrooper from Amazon's exclusive four figure boxed set.  The 6-inch figure is basically the same as a regular Stormtrooper, with more black marks on his record and armor.   It's not bad!  It's not fancy, but it's neat.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,242: Clone Trooper Commander (Phase I, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, November 20, 2015

Behold, the Clone Trooper Commander!  This 6-inch figure is part of Amazon's (at least temporarily) sold-out boxed set tracing the evolution of the troopers over 6 of the 7 movies.   This one is, like the others, exclusive to the set - you won't find this deco elsewhere in this size.   Get one if you can, and read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,241: Clone Trooper (Phase II, The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 19, 2015

Check out the 6-inch Clone Trooper (Phase II), complete with the revised bucket we've all been dying for - and some other changes.   A few deco points were altered from the previous releases, so this one is actually distinctive beyond just the helmet.  (But not by much.)  Should you snag this item next time Amazon restocks it for a decent price?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,240: Poe Dameron (Flight Suit 6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 18, 2015

Don't (or do) miss Poe Dameron!  This 6-inch pilot figure has a great sculpt with lots of wonderful detail, but strange ankles and stranger face deco.  If you leave the helmet on, it isn't bad - the swappable fists are a nice touch.  But do you need this one?   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,239: Poe Dameron (Jacket 6-Inch Black Series, The Force Awakens)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 17, 2015

Check out Target's 6-inch Poe Dameron - probably in stores now unless it sold out.   I got mine online for $10 off, which is where you want to be - it's a good figure, but the likeness on Oscar Isaac toys as of yet could use some work.  (He's a tough face to capture.)   Should you get this one?  Read on!
